ESTATE OF ALEXANDER ROSS. 

To his Excellency the President and the Honourable the 
Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania. 

The Petition of Mary Adams of Piltsburg humbly Sheweth 
That her former Husband, The late Col. Eneas i\Iackay, some 
years before his decease, became possessed of the Books and 
papers of a certain Mr. Alexander Ross at that time a Citizen 
of Pennsylvania, containing accounts and credits to the 
amount of between four and five thousand pounds, Exclusive 
of Landed property which was also very considerable. 

That as soon as she had information of Mr. Ross being 
Proscribed by the Laws for hi.s Treasonable proceedings 
against it She immediately embrased the earliest opportunity 
of giving such information as the Law direct to the x\gent3 for 
the County of Westmoreland of that part of his property then 
in her pofc;-espion as will appear by some Vouchers herewith 
Transmitted. 

That in consequence of this information the agents call'd 
upon and received of her the wliole property she taking a 
rect. for the same and which was then considered to be of a 
Valuable nature, cc^n.-isting cliieiiy of obligations and settled 
accounts witli maiiv Reputable Persons th;tt it appears to her 
that this busiiics.-5 has been conducted in a dark my.-ter:ous 
and confuswl manner in pasing thro the Hands of the several 
agents who have Ijoen succes.^fully appoindcd and that she 
never could, upon appliialion to any of tlieni have the least 
sati.-faction up'u 'h" .^p.bjcct.

To his Excelleucy the Presideu'i and the Honorble the Su- 
preme Execiuivc Council of Peun^ylvania 

The Petition of Maiy Adams of Pittsburg Humbly Shew- 
eth. 

That her former Husband, late Col. Eneas McKay some 
time before his decease became possessed of Books Bonds 
Notes <S:ca ihe property of Mr. Alexr. Ross (then a citizen of 
Pennsylvania) to a very considerable amount. Mr. Ross at 
the time of puting: his property into the possession of Mr. 
Mc kay gave him raid a Mr. Rn col full powe?- to Trarsar^t hi<= 
business while absent— Mr. McKay dying the year following 
the Book & Ca. remained in possession of your petitioner. 
That as soon as information of Mr. Ross's being proscribed 
arriv'd at Pittsburg— your Petitioner not being acquainted 
with the regular mode required by Law for giving informa- 
tion took the most early and rcadyest way she could devise by 
informing Mr. John Proctor one of the agents appointed by 
Council for Confiscated property in the County of Westmore- 
land informing him in two Letters both of which was within 
the time limited by Law of a Considerable property of Mr. 
Alexr. Ross a proscrib'd person being in her possession re- 
questing him to act as the nature of the case required, not re- 
ceiving an answer to either Letter she wrote him a third but 
received no answer. She then was advised to write to Coun- 
cil on the subject which she did, nothing was don? in the 
business for some years altho. she bad repeatedly inform'd 
Gentlemen in power of the whole transaction— At length IMr. 
Gallbraith and Mr. Huffnagle, the then agents for confiscated 
property received orders from Council to take the whole prop- 
erty into their possession, on their receiving the property 
they gave your Petitioner a Receipt for it. 

That your pctititmer conceives she is justly inliiled to such 
compensation as the Law direct for hc-r lirjelity anrl care in 
discovering ."-uch Valuable Estate. Wher.fore she humbly 
pray that your Honorable Body will take th.-; premisses intc 
Consideration and direct such inquirey into the Transaction 
as will do equal to Government and your Petitioner and she 
in duty bound will Pray.

May it please 

your Excellency 
Alexander Ross formerly a. Resident of this county, left it at 
the Commencement of the War and left behind him a consid- 
erable property which consisted iu lands Bonds and Book 
Debts.— In Consequence of his being an Enemy to America he 
was proscribed by Lane and his Estate confiscated — previous 
to his Embarkation for Europe he deposited into the hands of 
Colo. Encos :\IcKay all his valuable papers giving his full 
power to act for him. -Some time aft-r :\lr. :McKay Died be- 
ing iu the service of the United States, his widowed Mary my 
now Mother-in Law, then took charge of said pap-^rs^-As 
soon as she heard that said Ross's Estate was forfeited and 
that thi.T State would receive advjintase by knowing what she 
had in her possession of his she gave immediate Information 
thereof to per.sons properly authorized to receive such informa- 
tion and that within ihe lirnited Time Directed Ijy Law. All 
the papers relative to this tion, togc-tlior with Mr. 

McKrys Pcilion were laid before ihe Ilonble Council long 
ago and lately put ir.to your I'^X'-ollericy's hands by Doctr. 
John \Vill;ins one of lliat Ilonble Body for vhis County— Coun-

pcctiMr? the :• arne. —

Your Excellency will see by those papers that this busine?t 
has been piocraslir.ated lor a considerable Time, the reason 
thereof is best knov\-n to that liespeclable Body who I am 
satistied will do what is Right in the End. I have only to 
add ou this Subject that I know your Excellency's principal 
Delight is in doing good, and that your Love o£ Justice ex- 
tends as well to Iiulividuals as the Publick, and that if on ex- 
amining said authcntick \ouchers your Excellency finds the 
Petitioners claim founded in Justice you will favor the same 
and bring it to a speedy Issue and not othei"wise. 

Permit me now^ J"i=t to add my sincere conyrataluiion ou 
your Re-appointment to be our Governor. Long may your 
Excellency Fill the Seat of Government and Enjoy the Bless- 
ings of Health and Peace is the Real wish and prayer of your

STEPHEN BAYAN 
His Excellency 

Thomas Milllin, Esqr. 

, , ,. ' Pittsburg. 28th July 1791 

Sir 

My son in law Col. S. Bayard informed me that he had re- 
ceived a Letter from your Excellency lately in answer to his 
respecting the Confiscated property of Alex. Ross which I 
gave information of your Excellency was pleased to observe 
that the largest sums due to that Estate were settled previous 
to Ross's attainder and none but the small sum of three pounds 
»-8 appeared unsettled. 

As I gave the first information respecting this furfiture I 
still think it my duty to give such further information as 
comes within my knowledge and which I can fuMy prove if 
called upon in a proper manner. 

I beg leave therefore to mention to your Excellency thai 
several sums of money have been received by the late com- 
missrs. and not accounted for to the public. And jnany sums 
in this neighborhood yet ur.piiid one of considerable amount 
(about SOO £) due from the E.-tate of the IJecea.-cd Genl. 
Thompson, This was never settled or paid agreeable to the 
declaration of this Expect rs. his soji George and Mother. — 

Mr. G-eorge Thomp.son has lately advorlized all his Landed 
property for sale and preparing to goe down the river next 
fall. This debt may be worth looldug after before he goes. 

1 would not v.i^h to dictaie to your Excellency but would 
ju.=t observe tltat if a proinf pcrsuii was appointed in this 
Covmtv to look into and make a ihnrouuh e.vaiulnalirin into 



IN'VENTORIES AND SALES. 13 

tfiis Estate I think that the Slate of Peuniylvanla would re- 
ceive an advantage thereupon. 

Some of the Commissrs. appointed were indebted to this 
Estate and therefore I apprehend were careless about bring- 
ing it to a close. 

From these tew broken hints your Excellency will judge of 
the best method to be pursued to get a true and just state- 
ment of this forfeited Estate. 

I am with the utmost respect 

Your Excellency's most humble servt.

We are sensible That the Honourable Council ought to have 
been furnished with this Report a Considerable time past, and 
although we wish'd to have Complied with that duty, we v/ere 
not withstanding prevented by Col. Fattens Conduct, Who re- 
pediately applied to Rent the Great Spring Tract an Estate be- 
longing to Andrew Allen late of the City of Philada From 
whom said Patton }iad formerly rented as will appear by the 
Inclosed Lease fourteenth of May 17 OS. 

But he has not build the Barn nor Cleared the Quan- 
tity of Meadow Spccifyd m said Lease. 

On the first day of November last, said Patton agreed be- 
fore Evidence To take said place as is sat forth, in the lease 
of the same date, and as but one Lease was then Drawn, the 
Agents as the were met to sign the one finished, and he v/ouid 
the first time he Come to Town Si^n the Counterpart, we ac- 
cordingly Signed to him, but be afterwards Neglected from 
time to time, and whe]i prrst iUfiis'd saying that it was not 
Certain that the Place was forfiMi.d, We have Examined the 
Records of this CoiuKy, but find no Conveyance from \Tiniani 
to Andrew Allen. .\11 tl;e Proofs we have been able to Col- 
lect is the lease from Andrew Allen to Patton witncss'd by his 
father, and Colo. Daniel Ciymer bad heard Andrew Allen say. 
tliat his father had given hirn the Estate. 

We have reason to aj prebend tljut Patton v.ill Refuse a

ESTATE OF FRANCIS AND WILLIAM ARMSTRONG. 
Having considered the Petition of John Bryce respecting a 
moiety of a tract of Land forfeited by the attainer of Fran- 
cis and William Armstrong and purchased and afterwards con- 
veyed by the said John Bryce to John Nicholson Esquire — 
I am of opinion that a deed ought to be made to Mr. Nicholson 
in the usual form wherein the attainder of the parties is re- 
cited and all their Estate title and interest in & to ye land is 
conveyed without inserting any clause to warrant it free from 
dower or other incumbrances. The charge of £10 pr. An- 
num which is supposed to be a lien on this land I apprehend 
will not effect the purchaser and that the Widow can recover 
it only by a claim against the Commonwealth — and even if 
he should be evicted in whole or in part by any paramount 
title he will have a recompense agreeably to the direction of 
the act of 29th March 1779.— 

WM. BRADFORD Jun. 
Philad. Feb. 15th, 1790. 

The Committee to v.iiom was referred the Petition of John 
Bryce with tlie letter from John Nicholson Esq. 

■Report 

That John Bryce become the Purchaser of an undevided 
moiety of Abstract of land in Sadsbury Township Chester 
County forfeited by the attainder of FYancis, and William 
Armstrong, that .said Bryce has paid the Commonwealth for 
the Same, and Since Conveyed his letter to John Nicholson 
Esqr. that it appears by the last .will and Testament of the 
late father of the Said two Armstrongs, that their mother, 
and the v.idov,- of said testator has an Anuuiiy of ten pounds 
as a dower out of said Estate, and that it appears by the 
Certificate of one of the Agents for forfeited estates, in Ches- 
ter County that Said moiety v.-as not Sold Subject to any such 
Annuity, or incumbrance whatever. 

The Committee are therefore of opinion that it is out of the 
power of this board to refund the money that has been paid or 
give any relief against the annuity, as the estate was held 
without any reserve or mention made of Such incumbrance, 
that the tittle of Uie Pui-cbaser ought not to be elected there- 
by RcHolved 

That a Oi'-q<1 be made in tlio usual form lo Nicholson Esq. 
for one moi','ty of .Vbhtract of lap.f] i!i Sad^hury Tcwiishii',

The Committee to whom was referred the petition of John 
Bryce with the Letter from John Nicholson Esquire— made 
report which was read and adopted as follows Vizi. 

"That John Bryce became the purchai;er of an undivided 
moiety of a Tract of Land in Sadsbury Township in the Coun- 
ty of Chester forfeited by Francis and William Armstrong At- 
tainder of High Treason— that said Bryce has paid the Com- 
monwealth for the same and since conveyed his title to John 
Nicholson Esquire— that it appears by the last will and Tes- 
tament of the late Father of the said Francis and Vv'illiam 
Armstrong that their Mother the Widow of the Testator has 
an annuity of Ten pounds as a dower out of the said Estate 
and that it appears by a Certificate of one of the Agents for 
the sale of forfeited estates in Chester County that said Moiety 
was not sold subject to any such annuity or incumbrance 
whatever The Committee are therefore of opinion that it is 
out of the power of Council to refund the money that has been 
paid or give any relief against the Annuity as the Estate was 
sold v.'iihout any reserve or mention made of Such incum- 
brance and that the title of the purchaser ought not to be af- 
fected thereby they therefor offer the following Resolution- 
Resolved That a deed be made in the usual form to John 
Nicholson Esquire" for one Moiety of a Tract of Land in 
Sadsbury Township Chester County forfeited by the Attainder 
of Francis and William Armstrong and sold by the Commis- 
sioners for the Sale of Confiscated Estates to John Bryce who

Having sometime ago presented to your Honorable Board

Arm.stroug forfeited estate in Chester County Permit me now 
to remind you of and to solicit your determination 

thereon as soon as it may be convenient. 

In addition thereto I beg leave to mention to Council upon 
Bcarching the surveyor generals Office no w^arrant or survey 
appears for this Land, nor any deeds upon record in Chester 
County. — for which I am led to believe that their only right 
was that of an old Improvement still subject to the taking out 
a warrant and payment arrears of purchase money and 

Interest. If this be the case it is an in berance which I 
can assure your Honours was not mentioned at the time of 
Fa!e, nor do I believe it was known to the agent. 

Being persuaded that your Honorable Board will consider 
me subjected to the above incumbrance I am induced to hope

Sir. 

In the ejectment depending in Chester County, lessee of 
Thomas Barclay pr Procter, for Hog Island, I have had the 
Honour to be employed by the State, which is materially in- 
terested in the Event, on the part of the Plaintiff — The Plain- 
tiff's Counsel have received very direct Intelligence, that Mr. 
GaUoway had united every Title in him self before the War, 
by regular Conveyances & carried the Deeds to England. In- 
deed he promised to send them to us; but we are since in- 
formed, that it is out of his Pov.er, as we are told that all 
the Deeds <& other Documents, upon which claims of Loyalists 
have been allowed, are taken in the Hands of the British 
governni.ent & lodged in the ofuce of the Commissioners of 
Claims, or some office instituted for Govr. Mifllin. the pur- 
pose, to prevent iraproper use being made of them, in at- 
tempting to procure double compensation for the same thing, 
as some one .^uipposed to have done. 

We are furihor informed that upon proper application be- 
ing made, the Deeds in the present case may be procured; 
and the Creditors of }Ar. Barclay are applying this the 
British ^.liiiistcr have for that pmpo.se — We apprehend that 
the attempt to procure them may be rendered more successful 
by our own goverumcnt's joning in the Request; and submit 
to you the propriety of your sending a Letter to the American 
Minister, or -other public agent in London, requesting his 
co-operation with Mr. Barclay's Creditors, in procuring them 
to be sent over to this Country. If we can possess ourselves 
of these Deeds, we have not a Dc/ul)t that the Estate will be 
secured to the creditoi's of Yiv. Barclay <t the State ex- 
onerated of a very lioavy sum fur compensation which must 
be paid if the Land is adj'.idi^cd a.i^ain.-.t us. — .Mr. Martin of

Some property forfeited late of sa. Elliot was disposed of 
advantageously for the Commonwealth some time ago thro 
my agency under the direction of Council by Agreeing with 
the assignees of Sa. Elliot for a certain Sum in Specie which 
was paid by them And applied by me to purchase of Certifi- 
cates. The Assignees of Abel James to whom this Estate 
hath been conveyed since Sa. Elliots Attainder have offered 
one hundred and Sixty pounds prompt payment in Specie for 
the right of the Commonwealth in the above recited property 
and I conceive that it would purchase more Certificates Of 
Depreciation than would be produced by its sale for Certifi- 
cates at auction and therefore Submit the consideration to 
the Subject to your Honble Board.

In April last there was sold inter alia a life estate in a lot

Elliott, I thought it did not go to its full value and it was 
struck off to me, a deed hath been executed to me for it by 
your Excellency, the purchase money was £20 which I paid 
in Certificates, since that I sold my right thereof for £20 
Specie and after repaying myself, the said purchase money 
and the expenses of the deed, I have applied the residue to 
the purchase of Certificates for the State, and thereby re- 
deemed the sum of £58 10 of the public debt, beyond the £20 
purchase money aforesaid.

Sir: 

On looking over such Proclamations and other Papers as 
•Jiave come to my Hands, from the Monble. the Supreme Execu- 
tive Council of this State, I do not find any mention made 
of six Men who left this County, soon after the British Army 

pot Possession of the City of Philadelphia, and joined them 
there. ' 

Soon after my Appointment as an Agent I WTote to his Ex;- 
cp'lcncy Thomas Wharton Esqr. all I knew concerning those 
Men; as this was about two years ago, and before the Act of 

A}ii?cmbly for the Attainder of Traitors was made, tis prob- 
able my Ivetter might have been mislaid. Their Names are 
Alexr. McDonald, Kennet McKinzie and Edwd. Erwin all of 
Rye Township Farmers. Those three lived on small Farms, 
which were said not to be their Property, but I do not find 
that any Person has claimed the Places whereon they lived 

since they left them, if they are proscrib'd, the Lands may be 
advertised, and if there are any Claimers they will appear, W'il- 
liam Smith blacksmith, William I»iIcPher.?or blacksmith and 
Hugh Guin labourer, all of Tyrone Tov/nship, these three 
were were young Men, had no Laud. 

Thomas McCahan of Tuscarora Farmer went off afterwards, 
and I have received Inforuiation of him having been seen at 

New Yoik. He was a single Man rented out his Farm, left 
no persouaY E-tale, I think he ought to be pro;;cribed.

If I ought to do any Thing wiih his Land? 
Timothy Matlack, Esqr. •' 



Carlisle Feb. 12th. 17S0. 
Sir: 

Some Years ago, when the late Proprietaries of Pennsylva- 
nia thought fit to dispose of their tLands, near this Place they 
were pleased to grant about 200 as. part thereof to the Revd. 
Danl. Batwell, who, at Ihat Time, was the episcopal ]\Iission- 
ary for York and Cumberland Counties, from the Society in 
England for propagating the Christian Faith in Parts beyond 
the Seas; the I^ind was survey'd for him in pursuance of the 
Proprietary Warrant; he requested me to take Care of it, and 
prevent the Inhabitants of Carlisle from cutting the Timber, 
which I undertook, and have done ever since: soon after the 
Declaration of Independence, the Parson became an active 
Tory, was apprehended, by a Warrant from the Committee of 
Cumberland Couuvj', and confined in York Goal; after Congress 
removed to York, the Parson got Permission from that honble 
Bady to remove with his Family in New York, which he did 
after having sold his personal Estate. The Timber on his 
Land -suffered very little Damage, until these four last Weeks; 
Whilest I was attending the Courts a number of People have 
cut & destroyed the Wood of about 30 as of it, against those 
Offenders, I have brought Suits in the Parson's Name. Now, 
Sir, if the Parson is proscribed, and his Land forfeited, ray 
Suits are wrong, otherwise, Right. Your information how 
this IMatter is, will greatly oblidge, &c. 
Timothy Matlack, Esqr. 



Carlisle July 1st. 1780. 
Sir: 

I formerly wrote to Mr. Matlack, to know if Andrew Elliott 
formerly of Pialadolphia. late Col^cior of the Port of New 
York, was proscribed, for he owns a Tract of Land in this 
County, also to know if the Revd. Daniel Batweir.s T^and is 
forfeited, he had kavo of Congrc;is (v/hen that honble. Bady 
sat at York, to sell iii.-- goods, and remove, with his Family to 
New York.

INVENTORIES AND SAEES. 251 

Carlisle IStli. Dec. 17S0. 
Sir, 

Agreeable to luy Promise, when 1 had the Honor of wail- 
ing of your Excellency at Carlisle, I now send Extracts of the 
Letters I then mention'd, to those Extracts I have to add, 
that, since that Time, the Inhabitants of Carlisle have des- 
troyed the Timber of Mr. Batwell's Land exceedingly. 

The principal Reason of this Destruction I -take to be this, 
the Persons against whom I brought Actions of Trespass last 
Spring employ'd counsil and on motion of the Defendant's 
Counsil, and Argument before the Court of Common Pleas 
in July Term last, the Court ordered a Rule for Security for 
Costs or non Pross; whereupon, the People, (as I am infornf^d) 
concluvled, that Mr. Batwell had suffered a non suit, this No- 
tion I conceive, and perhaps the advice of their Council, en- 
couraged them to destroy the Timber: there is an Act of As- 
sembly entiteeled "an Act to prevent Trespasses upon the 
lands of absent persons &c a." of which I was ignorant, at 
that Time, and I believe the Court also, for it was above six 
months enacted before it was known here; since I knew it, I 
have been silent, because I knew not whether Mr. Batwells 
I^and is forfeited. 

I have lately, received lutormation, that a certain John 
Myer late of Earl Township Lancaster County, went to the 
English some Time ago, and that ho is owner of one full 
equal undivided moiety of a valuable Tract of Land in Let- 
terkenny Township in this County. 

Samuel Lindsay late of Guilford Township in this county 
went over to the English before the Declaration of Independ- 
ency he left two or three Tracts of Land in that Township, said 
to be under a Mortgage, for how much I know not. 

"When the honble Supreme Executive Council will be pleased 
to set the Agents right in these matters, so long before them, 
they will proceed to advertise and sell. I have the honor to 
be, 

Your Excellency's most obedient, 
and most humble servant

Sir. 

1 have Rec'd yours of the 4tli instant, ycnr request of have- 
ing the Date of the Proclamation specified in which Isaac 
Giay should have been Attained, is out of my Power to asser- 
tain at present, & I fear no such Proclamation ever was. I 
was appointtd an Agent in the place of Mr. Eberhart Michael 
Deceased, Coll. George Stewart my collogue in ofBce had 
made the seizure before my lime and had contrary to Law 
Advertized Grays Land together with other Lands he had 
seiz'd on, to be sold on the Premises, the Honorable George 
P.r>an then Vice Pressident hearing of the Advertisement, 
wrote up to have the matter put on a propper footing, when 
Mr. Stewart came to me we then Joind all our seizures to- 
gether in one Advertisement and held the sale at the Court 
}iou:.:c at which time I told Stewart 1 was Doublfull that Gray 
was not attained as I had no Proclamation with his name but 
he assured me he was, I have now wrote to a member of the 
Honbl. Council to ascertain the matter, and if he has not 
been 1 shall make applycation to have him attainted as 
there is no doubt but he Joind the Enemy, as soon as that 
is done I must make a sham sale to Vest the title in Mr. Jones 
but till I am assured from the Honble. Council that he has 
been allrcady or till they do Attaint him it will be very im- 
proper for me to sign any Cirtifycate. 

1 am Sir your very Humble Servt.

• ■■ ESTATE OF JOHN KERSLEY. 

Lancaster July ye 17th 1780. 

Sii'. I Received the directions of the Honourable Council of 
the 30th of June directing me to Seize on some Land in this 
Borough late the estate of John Kearsley Deceas'd which I 
have done, it is all laid off in Letts and Let on Ground rent at 
13 and 14 Sterling a lot, the Tenents are generally poor, I 
understand there is four Y'ears Rent due on most of the Lots, 
the most of the tenents complain of the hardships of making 
up the Rent at the rate of Sterling, and as Council sent me no 
directions what money to demand, I shall be glad ihey will 
inform me at which rate I am to Receive the different kinds 
of money and how I am to proceed with those that wont pay. 
as I think some will be foolishly obstonant till they are com- 
pedd'd, I told them if they would pay then, I would Receive 
Gold or Silver or the new State money at the Exchange of 55 
pr. Ct. or Sixty Continental Dollars for one of the former, 
but not one chose to pay at that rate now, but 1 have 
directed them all to be prepared at the time I go round 
among them next, as I should write to the Honourable Council 
for further directions — I have been last week at Rankin's 
Ferry and John Cornhouse in the Presence of James Bayley. 
Esqr. who I gor to go with me, confesses that he <lid convey 
to James Ranldn, but jjlcad, that his Wife did noi sign the 
Deed, and that it was not acknowledged, and likewise that 
only iho lialf of the ten and a half acres was sold to Rankin, 
as the Ferry and I'renajses was to be in partnership, which he 
proves by the agreement between them, a Coppy of which I 
herewith send, he likewise sliev.'d us Rankins Bond of the 
same date for fii'iy two Pounds ten sliillings and says the 
imiiroveinents v.liieh W. a Square. 1 log House, and Round log 
Stable, are of his Building, as I'.uilt ai his expense, but says 



INVENTORIES AND SALES. 263 

Haulcin wns at great expence in getting Roads laid out — 
If Council thinks the Place should be sold they will please 
to inform me, and I will advertize and sell as soon as pos- 
silde. There is no other estate that I know of in this County 
to sell except a small Gravil Island near McChesnts which 
l{ankin took up for a fishing place, but I don't think it would' 
bring more than would pay for Advertizing and the Cryer. 

I think it is about a year ago I informed Council of Jacob 
IJoyer of Denegall Township Farmer and Abraham Bare (I 
think) of Earl Township being gone to the enemy. Boyer 
wont away in February 177S and Bare took some Hessian 
rri.-oners into Philadelphia when Geul. How was there, he 
came back and Judge Atlee hearing of him Issued his War- 
rent for him, but he was not taken and went off again and 
wa.s not heard of since but as they have not been Proscribed, I 
could make no Seizure, I am your Excellency's 

\ery Humble Servant, 
CIIAS. HALL. 

' ii. ■ Lancaster, February ye Sth 1781. 

Sir:, 

Agreeable to the Order of Your Honourable Beard of the 
ItJlh of January. I herewith send au account of the Con- 
tiscated Estates.' that remain unsold in this County, with a 
Uii^cription and valuation of them as near as I can — first a 
Plantation situate in Manuor Township call'd the Indian 
Town, said to contain five hundred Acres, with two Log 
Houses Ba — &,c. the Land very good, and generally thought 
to be worth twenty Pound.s pr. Acre, seiz'd on by Order of 
Council — second, iliiriy .seven or eight lots of ground situate 
within the Borough call's Musscr.s town — late the Estate of 
Doctr. John Kersley, the Lets are on ground rent at thirteen 
Shillings a Lot, no Rents has been paid for three Years pa^t, 
this was seizd on by Order of Council likewise. 

Third, A Stony piece of Land adjoining Rankins Ferry, 
Ihe Quantity unknown hut worth very little, Doctr. John 
Harris claims it by virtue tjf an fdd right, I understand he 
has enter'd his claim before the Honourable the Judg*; of the 
^-'uprcme Court, and has liad a peice adjudged to him in York 
Cciuuty oi)o.>^ite to this, on the .same claim. 

Fourili, Rankin's F( rry, I foi-iuei-ly r-cnt a coppy of an 
!>■•". t-Tuont bclwfi n K;tn!::!i and J<jhn Cornhnn.-e to Council.

264 FORFEITED ESTATES, 

profits of the I^gmtv that Cornhorse had. Received no money 
fiom Rankin, \vliich he prov'd by shewing Rankins Bond of 
the same dale ^vith the Agreement, and further says he has 
been at all tlie expence of the improvements His Excellency 
when in I^incaster said he thought it was as well to drop it. 

Fifth, A &inall gravil Island in Susquehanna which Rankin 
took up for a fitdiing place, but very poor even for that, and 
would sell for very little If anything more than will pay the 
Cryer. 

Sixth, Eighty seven Acres of Land in Denegall Township 
late the E^tare of .Tacob Boyers, the Valuation you will see 
by the inclos'd coppy of an agreement, the Original with the 
Deeds being in the Hands of Martin Nessley of Mouritjoy 
Township, who will not deliver them up without being com- 
pell'd to it, Abraham Ream the Puix'haser wants a Deed, I 
.shall be glad if Council will send me instructions what to de- 
mand if the .'•ale is allow'd to be good, I told him I thought 
he could not expect a Deed till he paid the two hundred and 
twenty five Pounds cither in Specia, or State money. 

Seventh, Abraham Bare lately attainted, had his Father 
Alive at the time he Join'd the enemy who since died intes- 
tate, leaving a considerable estate, th oldest son administer'd 
but has made no Reiurn to the Office. I therefore call'd an 
Orphans Court, I gave the sub Sheriff some directions when 
he went to serve it, he brought the inclosed paper which 
shews there is something considerable as it is not likely they 
have allow'd liim more then the Law will. 

Eighth. Thomas Carr was sometime ago convicted of Mis- 
prison of treason at Cumberland Court it is but lately I got 
inteligence of it and have not yet been to make Seizure, he 
' was possess'd of either two or three fifths of five Hundred 
aci-es of Land in this County on Conewago Creek on the 
Road leading to Harris's Feiry. I hear he has made his 
escape from Cumberland Goal. 1 shall make further inquiry 
about it and if I find it so shall give Council notice of it. 
I am with Due Respect 

Your Excelleiicys very Humble Servant

Sir 

The bearer is John Brubaker who purchased of Charles 
Lyng real e.-latc of John liine an attainted traitor .Siluaie in 
Earl Township Lanca::ier County which was sold by thi- agents 
of forfeited estates & puicha^ed by L\ng. By ;t Conp de main

oul of possession & been obliged to institute an ejectment 
which is pending for trial at our next Court of Nisi Priiis. 
The defender. ts bri'ig forward this claim of the representatives 
of Michael Rine the faiher of John Rine on the validity of 
which claim the event of the Suit will rest. Under these 
circumstances it seems the present is the moment when the 
interest of the Commonwealth requires the Situation of this 
property which they are bound to guarantee to be noticed to 
their representatives that he may have an opportunity of 
carrying into effect the spirit of the resolution of the executive 
Council of the 9th. of April 17S7 on the petition of Charles 
Lyng respecting this property. Whether the immediate objcL-L 
of this resolution a title under the Sheriff can be combined 
with the ground of defence above mentioned I cannot Say 
from my present knowledge of the business but as the other 
appears to be seriously made & would if carried into effect 
be equally prejudicial to the interest of the government it 
seems to me that the resolution alluded to calls for the in- 
terference of the officers of the State in the one case as well 
as the other. 

You will please therefore at the instance of Brubaker to 
make Known to the Governor the contents of this representa- 
tion that he may determine whether the interest of the 
Government docs not require that the Attorney General should 
be requested to defend at the in.'^tance & compensation of the 
State the present Suit 6c whether the papers essential to 
support the title derived from the act of the Government 
siiuuld not be fui-nished gratis. It will at least obviate all 
ditliculties to his return to the treasury in case the event 
ehould be adverse 

Tiie papers we v.ant from the minutes of the Executive 
Council are 

1st. — The appointment of the Commissioners or agents of 
forfeited estates. 

2nd.— their return of Sale & Copy of their certificate of the 
payment of the puichase money. 

2rd. — Their order of conhrmation (t resolution to execute 
a deed. 

If po:>.sible we should have the advertisement of the agents 
of the Sale if anytliing of the Sort appear:^ in the niinmos or 
any nolire taken of il in any of (ho iirocecilings of Coui.cil b.-t 
it be certified

the Deed was executed by Wm. Adams in Trust for the Use

Sir, . 

We are honoured with Yours of the 23d. Instt. We should 
have wrote at the same time with Mr. Hubley, but Mr. Charles 
Hall having been present at the Trial, and we having seen 
his Letter to your Honorable Board with a State of the Case 
drawn up by Mr. Yeates, a Copy of which we inclose, which 
we believe to be strictly true; we thought it unnecessary to 
give Council any further Trouble. It appears to us, that the 
Lands are e.':cheatfd to Government for- Want of Heirs, and 
It would perhaps be best for the parties, that the Lands were 
seized on by the State; for the parties will keep each other 
in Law as long as they can; If at a future Day any Heirs 
should appear, theie is no doubt Government would do them 
strict Justice — 

We are 

Sir 
with duo Esteem 
Your very Ininible Servants

INVEXTORIES AND SALES. 283 

Lancaster July 2Ttli. ITSl. 
Sir. 

Mr. William Henry having shewn me Your Letter of the 
23d. Instant on the Subject of Rubeys Estate; and at the same 
Time informed me that Mr. Baily being on his way to 
Philadelphia Mr. Zanziuger and himself had just Time to 
send with him the Case as stated by Mr. Yeates for Mr. Hall. 
I beg leave just to inform you, that the State of Facts which 
1 heretofore aquainted you with were drawn up, at the par- 
ticular desire of Mr. Henry and Mr. Zanzinger and by them 
considered as done truly before I sent them to you.— I had not 
an opportunity of Seeing the Facts stated which-Mr. Hall has 
sent you before to day and I observe therein it is said that 
no Claim has been made since 1763— This is erroneous as the 
Letters wrote by the Heirs are directed to Nicholas Johns 
and Philip Brendle, who had nothing to do with the Estate till 
the latter end of 17C5— John Rubey made his Will and died 
in 17C3— His widow managed the Estate during her Life and 
after hor decease on the 21st. October 1765. Administration 
of her Estate was granted to Nicholas Johns & Philip Brendle 
— They wrote Letters to Switzerland and the Heirs and the 
Parson cf the Parish where they live, wrote Letters in return, 
which could not be uutill some Time in 1766 — You will please 
to understand that all the Papers, Letters &c respecting this 
E.>^tate were loged with Nicholas Jolms in his Life Time and 
after his decease, came into the Hands of one of his Sons in 
1-aw and are now in the Hands of ilr. Yeates and I cannot 
give you any of their Contents as they don't choose to Shew 
them. Yet the Person who read them for Mr. Yeates says 
that he thinks that some of the Letters bare date as late as 
]7Cy — It is also stated by them that Johns and Brendle passed 
their Adtnion Acct. in v.-hich a Balance of £24 19 10 was 
in their Hands for the Heirs of Ruby — It is true that there 
was such a Balance but it. was realy and truly in the Hands 
C'f Johns only, who was the keeper not only of the Papers, 
but also of the Money belonging to the Estate and Brendle 
lias since Accounted for all the Monies that have came to his 
Hands and Credited himself for the Expenses of building a 
House i)ayment of 'J"axos <&c which brings a balance in bis 
favdr of £2(j If, 7. However I think these Matters are of no 
fuitlior Consideration than to shew that there are Heirs and 
Moiify is due to the present Lan<llord Brendle, which he 
'»ii^::l;t to be roimbursod should the Estate be taken out of his 
Hands. — 'I'lu- principal Consideration before Council v,i!l be 



In

whether they think that Rubeys Estate is Escheated, and if 
they are cf that opinion whether they will claim it imidiately 
a.s such, or wait a future day for that purpose — Or more 
piincipally whether they mean to prosecute their Claim (if 
any they think they have) under Mr. Yeate's allegation that 
they hold under the Landlord by Deed since the Commence- 
ment of the Lease. — I am 

Sir with great respect 
Your obedient «fc very hble Sevt.

JNO. McNAlR, jr. 
Sir. Agent. 

In Septr. 1778 — I purchased at the agents sales Northampton 
County for the Right reverend Bishop White seven tracts of 
land suM as (he foi felted Estate of Christian Huch and which 
had been morgagtd to him for such a sum decreed by sup. 
Court as with interest tile time of sale amounted to £1482 16 11 
Spence — as that was all true property that he expected to 
satisfy his mortgage the Doctr. authorized me and 1 accord- 
ingly bade them up and they were struck off and conveyed to 
him by Deed from the late Council at the amount of his debt 
as aforesaid, since that however he hath informed me of 
another tract not yet sold which was also included in the 
same mortgage — and remains yet to be sold — Doctr. White 
wishes as the sum aforesaid was more than the value of all 
and as it was only a mistake that the remaining tract was not 
returned to be sold at the same time which if it had been 
dune would have been included in the same sum of Purchase 
nioneylhat the residuary tract m.ay be conveyed to him like- 
wise free of additional charge — If it can be done under the 
curcumstancC'S — I can with truth declare that the sum afore- 
said is more than twice the amount which at that time would 
have been obtained for the same seven tracts sold had it not 
been for Doctr. Whites offer and that in the said offer he 
was regulated as he mentioned at the time not by the value 
of the land exposed for sale but by the amount of his debt 
depending thereon for payment. 
With great respect I am your Excelly. Most Obed. Servant,

360 FORFEITED ESTATES, 

Sir. 

The following tract of land late the Estate of Christian Huck 
and foifeited to the Common Wealth by his attainder for 
Treason remains to be sold for which you will probably think 
proper to direct the agent of Northampton County viz. a 
tract containing 301 141-160 Acres surveyed in virtue of a 
warrt. dated Aug. 21, 1776 to Kernette McCulloch, who con- 
veyed the same in fee to Christian Huck aforesd. Augt. 24, 
1776 in Northampton County adjoining other land late of sd. 
Huck & forfeited as aforesd. & heretofore sold by the state in 
1787. 

This is one of Eight tracts which was mortgaged to the 
right Reverend Uoctr. Wm. White and the other seven sold 
as aforesd. were purchased by him at more than twice the 
sum they would have been struck off at to any other purchaser, 
or then he would then have given had he expected any 
other resource for payment as he did not he instructed me 
not knowing that his mortgage included this also to bid them 
up for him to the amot. of his decree for the same which was 
done thro the Agent — and now that he hath discovered this 
tract remains he expected to obtain a title thereto also at 
first without farther consideration but in as much as no tittle 
can pass to him without a public sale he hath consented to 
bid that in also for as low a consideration as he can — had not 
the mistake taken place by him respecting the tracts mort- 
gaged he would unquestionably had the whole at the same 
price as the part sold but as it is I cannot think it can be done 
in any other way than by a sale as aforesaid at which he may 
become the purchaser. 
I have the honor to be with great respect your Excellency 

most obed. humble Servant.
